Buffalo Bills news, 2/20: offensive tackle depth in the draft

There is some depth at offensive tackle in the draft, which could prompt the Buffalo Bills to wait on upgrading that spot to the later rounds.

Bills may be able to wait on offensive tackle -

"There's more quality at the top end of this draft than I've seen in a long time and from a position standpoint," Mayock said. "I think offensive tackle is particularly deep.  You can go three rounds, four rounds deep this year, and get a starting offensive tackle." This is exactly what I advocated for in last night's Buffalo Rumblings Live. With the depth at tackle, why spend a first round pick on one? You're not trying to replace Glenn. If you're looking for a right tackle, which the Bills are, it only makes sense to wait around a little.

"04:15 – There are plenty of players who are close to hitting the free-agent market, so it's time to get out the wallet. Our analysts decide if players should be rented, bought or replaced by their current teams." Some chatter about Jairus Byrd. Takeo Spikes thinks he'll get the franchise tag. Spikes also says that the Bills have a history of letting their stars go, something someone should tell Stevie Johnson, Fred Jackson or Kyle Williams. Spikes goes on to say the Bills might be able to trade Byrd, something that we all know isn't going to happen. He was a better linebacker than analyst.
